| If you're not into the epic technical challenge of the Potto Raid, come out anyway and ski the Crooked Lake Cruise!
There will be a bonfire down by Silver Lake for the Potto Raid this year. While the raiders are attempting the big loop for hours, you can feel free to enjoy the 5-mile inner loop of the Crooked Lake Trail! It's well-known as an enjoyable, rolling, moderately challenging trail. It's the loop that the normal people enjoy.
No fee for the Crooked Cruise! (Or for the Potto, for that matter.) Just come out and ski! Folks will be around from 10am to 2pm. You can even go out on this easy trail and it'll meet up with the Potto so you can intercept the raiders as they head into the final stretch.
Bring snacks and beverages! Folding chairs, too.
